black + beige

I thought of this outfit while falling asleep one night, because that's totally normal right? To go over the contents of your closet as you're falling asleep, plan out new combinations, think through your options. Despite the alarming rate at which this linen sweater wrinkles, I love it.  It's that perfect weight for those days where the weather can't quite agree on what season to be. It's been so up and down lately, I have been struggling to get dressed in the morning. Do I need a full on winter coat, a blanket scarf, or just a light sweater? In my sleepy state I thought it would be a good idea to pair it with this skirt, which I bought last year but haven't gotten much use out of. I thought the loose shape of the sweater would fit nicely over this flouncy black skirt. I liked the result a lot more than I thought I would. You can never tell with these on the brink of sleep ideas. When has putting a giraffe in moon boots ever worked? But now I kind of want to wear this combination at least once a week. It's casual and relaxed, but still a little girly. 

So tell me, is this outfit planning while falling asleep thing normal?


  1. Awww, cool, casual and chic.

  2. Love this- it's early fall chic at its finest.
    And YES, I totally do that, too- think of outfit when I'm falling asleep! I totally thought I was the only one, ha. Great sleepy minds? :)

  3. I love skirts like this - you paired it so well with the sweater and booties!! I think I might need to recreate this look!!

  4. How funny! I actually plan outfits while I'm running. It totally makes the run go by faster for me! :P

    This is an adorable pairing, too... so your mind wandering to your closet while you're trying to fall asleep seems to be a good way to plan a new outfit! ;)

  5. I live the loose sweater paired with a skirt, that's a great idea! Hilarious that you can up with it as your going to sleep, that seems to be my best thinking time:)

  6. Picking out outfit combinations while you are falling asleep is totally normal, at least for me ;-) Great outfit!

  16. haha i have been guilty to do the same as well! sometimes i get excited about thinking of new outfits, and i start piecing them together while lying in bed so I don't have to rush and bumble in the morning. And this one came out looking ah-mazing. I definitely like the two baggy pieces together, so pretty and relaxed :)
